We have started planning this year’s Bike to Work Day (BTWD) over here at BikePGH, and we would like to get some ideas from you:
Where would you like to see hydration stations on BTWD? Can you think of any intersections in Pittsburgh’s neighborhoods that would be convenient for you and other bicycle commuters to stop by on their way into work or coming home from work?
Hydration stations will have beverages, snacks, educational materials, as well as special BTWD offers.
We know that every day is “Bike to Work Day” for some of you, but this will be a fun event and is important for bringing attention to bicycling in the City of Pittsburgh. We would love your input! Thanks!
I would think the issue with CLP would be the relative difficulty of getting there if you are heading inbound through Oakland. It might be better to do on the ground around the Cathedral of Learning, as a cyclist traveling any direction can get there without doubling back much.
You might be surprised how many cyclists are on the library side…CMU, Pitt & Oakland are also accessed from Squirrel Hill via Schenley Drive & from South Oakland via Bouquet. Maybe Schenley Plaza is a good hi-viz spot from all points.
